What’s the right choice anyways?

The whole process could deplete anyone’s willpower, but which phase of the decision-making process was most fatiguing? To find out, Kathleen Vohs, a former colleague of Baumeister’s now at the University of Minnesota, performed an experiment using the self-service Web site of Dell Computers. One group in the experiment carefully studied the advantages and disadvantages of various features available for a computer — the type of screen, the size of the hard drive, etc. — without actually making a final decision on which ones to choose. A second group was given a list of predetermined specifications and told to configure a computer by going through the laborious, step-by-step process of locating the specified features among the arrays of options and then clicking on the right ones. The purpose of this was to duplicate everything that happens in the postdecisional phase, when the choice is implemented. The third group had to figure out for themselves which features they wanted on their computers and go through the process of choosing them; they didn’t simply ponder options (like the first group) or implement others’ choices (like the second group). They had to cast the die, and that turned out to be the most fatiguing task of all. When self-control was measured, they were the one who were most depleted, by far.

A pastor I know, Stephey Bilynskyj, starts each confirmation class with a jar full ofbeans. He asks his students to guess how many beans are in the jar, and on a big pad ofpaper writes down their estimates. Then, next to those estimates, he helps them makeanother list: Their favorite songs. When the lists are complete, he reveals the actualnumber of beans in the jar. The whole class looks over their guesses, to see whichestimate was closest to being right. Bilynskyj then turns to the list of favorite songs."And which one of these is closest to being right?" he asks. The studentsprotest that there is no "right answer"; a person's favorite song is purely amatter of taste. Bilynskyj, who holds a Ph.D. in philosophy from Notre Dame asks,"When you decide what to believe in terms of your faith, is that more like guessingthe number of beans, or more like choosing your favorite song?" Always, Bilynskyjsays, from old as well as young, he gets the same answer: Choosing one's faith is morelike choosing a favorite song. When Bilynskyj told me this, it took my breath away."After they say that, do you confirm them?" I asked him. "Well,"smiled Bilynskyj, "First I try to argue them out of it."
